This month, #jennysaville’s “propped” (1992) became the worlds' most expensive work of art by a living #femaleartist at sotheby's contemporary art evening sale in #london. auctioneer @ob1london led a bidding battle lasting more than 10 minutes between 8 bidders, resulting in a final price of £9.5m ($12.5m) and a new auction world record. 🔥👏💥#womenartists#artbusiness#contemporaryart

“i wish you could see how like the sun you are.
still present when the night comes & still shining even when the clouds pass through.
you see, just because there are periods of darkness, it does not take away from your brilliance. you still are the brightest star in existence, but if you shine all day, everyday, all would be off balance. the flowers would die without rain. the foundation would crack. so allow the night to come & embrace it when it does.
you will light up the world again soon” ❤️
I’ve been a runner since i was 15. i got into cross country in high school on a whim, and i loved it so much that i kept competing all the way through college. racing was fun, and so was seeing myself improve, but that was always just a positive side effect. since day one, running has been about the freedom, conquering a daily challenge, and consuming the world at my own pace. running, like art, is something i can have all to myself.
i’ve spent more than a decade now as a runner, and only a femoral stress fracture my senior year in college and a late-stage pregnancy fall (everything was okay :)) have kept me away for more than a few weeks at a time. like with any long-term pursuit, i’ve occasionally felt the need to back off, but i can only go so long without lacing up my shoes and allowing them to take me where i need to go. it’s not an obsession or even an exercise-craze, but simply my way to re-align my mind and body.
